Claris FileMaker Server 19 Installation and Configuration Guide

Claris® FileMaker Server® is a dedicated database server that hosts databases created using Claris FileMaker Pro® so that data can be shared and modified by FileMaker Pro, Claris FileMaker Go®, and Claris FileMaker WebDirect® clients, and by other client applications supported by the Claris FileMaker Server Web Publishing Engine and the Claris FileMaker® Data API Engine.
